Thanking

I think it's fair to say that this last year has left many scratching their heads looking for something to be thankful for. For me, it's been the craptastic economy in the San Francisco Bay Area, the fiasco of relocating to Seattle, Washington (And what looks like the return to San Mateo, Ca) and all the devastation that has left in its wake, and the fall out from some social issues.

But for the most of us it's been the passing of many big names in music and the arts, along with the insane, did-not-see-that-coming end to the 2016 presidential election, Standing Rock, race issues, and world affairs. And almost no one is getting out of this year unscathed financially... well, except the rich and those tech fuckers. (And I'll admit tech is starting to feel it at some levels and in some sectors.)

HOWEVER... (There's always an "however".)

If you're reading this, that means you're still substantial in the department of having things. And, we can all be mindful, and thankful, that's there's going to be a tomorrow. So, with that in mind, let me wish you all the best today, and to the end of the year. May your blessings be countless and your tummy ill from poor dinner choices.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to console myself at a local pub. Have a good one.

(Is... is 2016 over yet?)
